Put the recovery CD in the DVD drive and at the first screen press del or f1 so that you can setup the Boot order. Make sure CD/DVD is on the top. You have to reinstall windows to get your computer working. The Dell recovery Disk will erase all data on the hard drive if you use it.

Virus attack is a possible cause.
Always make sure that your antivirus is updated regularly. And your Windows updates are on. This increases security of your system.
Try booting in safe mode and run antivirus.
Steps to boot in Safe Mode:
  • If the computer is running, shut down Windows, and then turn off the power
  • Wait 30 seconds, and then turn the computer on.
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with all troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.

Then scan your system for viruses through your antivirus.
If this doesn't work then, select Safe Mode with Networking as an option and access internet and update your Antivirus first then, scan your system.
If you have problems in updating your antivirus, please use following link to scan your system, Make sure you are in Safe Mode with Networking while you perform this step.
wish you all the best :)
